Azimuths may be geodetic, astronomic,magnetic, grid, record, or assumed, depending on the reference meridian avoid any confusion, it is necessary to state in the field notes, at the beginning of work, what reference meridian applies for azimuths, and whether they are observed from north or south.

Edouard Gaston Deville has written: 'Examples of astronomic and geodetic calculations for the use of land surveyors' -- subject(s): Accessible book, Surveying 'Photographic surveying' -- . Example illustrates, that theodolite is high precise instrument. For measuring angles we can not expect that holding a rod on target point (as in case of leveling) is sufficient. We have to use plumb-bob with visible line to allow clear reading.

Land surveyors use specialized instruments to measure angles and distances, from which they calculate horizontal and vertical positions. The Global Positioning System (and to a potentially greater extent, the emerging Global Navigation Satellite System) enables both surveyors and ordinary citizens to determine positions by measuring distances Author: David DiBiase. Or any star, really, but Polaris is most common. Then, from the published ephemeris data and knowing the time that the surveyors took the shots, you can calculate a deviation of the north star from true north, and then adjust the survey by that much. Isn't this how Astro bearings are derived? Disclaimer: I'm not a Land Surveyor.

This vintage work contains a series of examples of astronomic and geodetic calculations used by land surveyoys. Written in simple, concise language and containing a plethora of useful tables, charts, and equations, this text, although old, will be of much utility to the modern reader with an interest in the subject, and would make for a great addition to Author: Edouard Deville.

Geodetic astronomy, on the other hand, is described as [Mueller, ] the art and science for determining, by astronomical observations, the positions of points on the earth and the azimuths of the geodetic lines connecting such points.

When referring to its use in surveying, the terms practical or positional astronomy are often used. Edouard Gaston Deville has written: 'Examples of astronomic and geodetic calculations for the use of land surveyors' -- subject(s): Accessible book, Surveying 'Photographic surveying'.

Jerry McGray has been a managing principal of McGray & McGray Land Surveyors for 20 years, including nine years as GPS project manager. He conducts seminars on and has authored dozens of articles about GPS and geodetic surveying. He also acts as POB's editorial director and serves on POB's Editorial Advisory Board.

In the U.S., the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) maintains a National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) that consists of approximatelyhorizontal andvertical control stations (Doyle,).

Coordinates associated with horizontal control points are referenced to NAD 83; elevations are relative to NAVD Please notice the astronomical coordinates of a station in the illustration. This is an actual station called Youghall in North America.

The astronomic coordinates of that station, 40 degrees, 25 minutes, seconds, differ from the geodetic coordinate, the latitude in that case being 40 degrees, 25 minutes. ALL the (legitimate) versions of north are true, in that they are are some examples.

- Astronomic North - the direction toward the center of rotation of the celestial sphere in the northern hemisphere. - Geodetic North - the direction of the meridian line through the point in question. added to an astronomic azimuth, yields a geodetic azimuth, it is known as the Laplace correction.

It is important to note that NGS uses a clockwise rotation regarding the Laplace correction. The ellipsoid height per the NAD83 ellipsoid is shown followed by the geoid height where the position is covered by NGS’s GEOID Size: KB.

Basic Surveying - Theory and Practice. Suppose the distance to be measured is an exact multiple (n) of 10 m. The optical path however, will be 2n x 10 m (this is the double distance).

As the total path is 2n x 10 m, the total phase delay is n x °.File Size: 1MB. To survey an open field by chain survey in order to calculate the area of the open field. Equipments: Chain, Tape, Ranging Rods, Arrows, Cross Staff. Procedure for surveying the given open field (Closed Traverse): Note: This procedure is general procedure Size: 2MB.

Surveyors typically measure positions in series. Starting at control points, they measure angles and distances to new locations, and use trigonometry to calculate positions in a plane coordinate system.

Measuring a series of positions in this way is known as "running a traverse.". CONTENTS Preface xi Acknowledgments xiii How to Use This Book xv Chapter 1.

From to the adoption of NAD83 inazimuths in geodetic surveys were reckoned from the south, clockwise, rather than from the more logical origin, north, used by land surveyors.

Walter D. Lambert in a short article and some notes compiled in gave several explanations, any of which could suffice as a good reason for the practice.Deville, Edouard Gaston Examples of Astronomic and Geodetic Calculations for the Use of Land Surveyors Dix, Thomas A Treatise on Land Surveying Before Drahn, Richard and Stefan, Milo BLM Guide.

Surveyors use the bearing/quadrant system and Gps 's use azimuth. Many surveyors use coordinates based upon the state plane system or use a datum specifically tailored to the individual job. If your plat has NAD83 coordinates then you can change them over to UTM's to use with a Gps.
